Virtual Event “Images and digital representations of a bicentennial”

Ioannina, Greece
Polyxeni Mantzou presented the PALIMPSEST experience during the online event: “Images and digital representations of a bicentennial” organized by the Regional Directorate of Education of Epirus.

According to Prof. Mantzou PALIMPSEST has been a long and fructiferous project, with many distinct but interconnected stages and with an incredible participation of public and experts. It seems that in itself it has created a palimpsest of processes, agents and relations.
The original objective was to create an app-triggered, open-air, interactive, ethereal, urban museum where stories of the past would be reinserted into the city, safeguarding intangible cultural heritage and attracting tourism. But PALIMPSEST has gone far beyond.

Concluding, she said that PALIMPSEST is a creative approach, meaning that end products are provisional; resulting processes are open and continuous, and all momentary conclusions are punctual and ephemeral. PALIMPSEST is in itself a consecutive process of layers that have been and layers that are to come.
